Nearly a dozen freshman House Democrats are searching high and low for the missing turtle, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has gone into hiding.

McConnell was not in the Senate majority office.

McConnell was not in the Senate cloakroom.

McConnell was not on the Senate floor.

McConnell was not in his personal office.

"He seems to be running away from us," Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York said to fellow lawmakers. She later tweeted a new hashtag, #WheresMitch.
